Illustration for me is about engaging with life – the myriad of cultures, visual imagery, textures and patterns, and of course people – in all of our wonderful guises. The challenge is to capture those moments which intrigue and inspire, to create images which break through the surplus of digital media and reconnect the viewer to their own sense of wonder, as if they are seeing the subject for the first time.
